• Kirkwood High school offers an Extended School Year program (ESY) for its students during the month of June. The program consists of credit recovery and credit enhancement courses. You may enroll in either credit recovery or credit enhancement-not both. Both programs require strict attendance-lack of attendance will result in being dropped from the course. 

    Credit Recovery

    Credit recovery courses are designed for students who fail a core class (Social Studies, Math, English, & Science) and must retake the class to meet a graduation requirement. Courses run 4 hours in length for 17 days.  

    ESY Recovery 2020 starts on 5/27 and ends on 6/18.

    Bus service is available for students eligible for transportation.

    Class for Credit Recovery run from 7:45 to 11:45, Monday through Friday.

    If you are enrolled in Credit Recovery, you are ineligible to take Credit Enhancement courses. 

    Credit Enhancement

    Kirkwood High School offers the following courses during the summer: Lifetime Fitness, Health and Personal Finance. 

    Health and Personal Finance will be offered online through Launch. Lifetime Fitness will be offered on campus. Section 1 of Lifetime Fitness runs from 7:30 am to 10:30 am. Section 2 of Lifetime Fitness runs from 10:45 am to 1:45 pm. 

    Priority for enrollment is given to rising senior students who need the course for graduation. Students can take one course for ½ credit or two courses for 1 credit. The most a student can earn is 1.0 credit in the Extended School Year program.


    Enrollment for the Enhancement classes will be on March 5th. The link to enrollment will be found on this webpage. The link will go live at 10:00 am. 

    The ESY Enhancement classes begin on 5/26 and run through 6/22.
